Carrie Fishers brother rages over snub from Walk Of Fame ceremony

Todd Fisher discusses help Carrie Fisher sought for her bipolar

Carrie Fisher’s brother Todd has raged over being cut out from the late star’s upcoming Hollywood Walk Of Fame ceremony.

The Star Wars actress, who died in December 2016 aged 60, will be remembered on May 4 by finally getting a long-overdue star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.

The date holds special significance to fans, who have branded May 4 ‘Star Wars Day’ in honour of the iconic phrase “may the force be with you”.

But while Carrie’s daughter, American Horror Story star Billie Lourd, will be among those in attendance, the late star’s brother Todd says he has been snubbed from the guest list by family.

Speaking to TMZ, Todd claimed he didn’t make the cut of the 30-seat guest list, with the family being in charge of who can and can’t attend.

He told the site: “Frankly, it’s a distressing situation and I don’t deserve to be put in this position.”

“As the only brother of Carrie Fisher, being omitted from this special day is truly hurtful,” he added.

Todd insists he believes Carrie would’ve wanted him at the event, in the same way he was present with her during other notable honours for their mother, Singin’ In The Rain’s Debbie Reynolds.

Reynolds got two stars on the Walk Of Fame – one in 1960 and one in 1997 – and also had her hands and footprints placed in concrete at LA’s Chinese Theatre in 1965.

Carrie and Todd – Reynolds’ children from first husband Eddie Fisher – were present for both the handprint ceremony and second Walk Of Fame star, and the trio were often seen together during landmark moments in the careers of their family members.

Reynolds died aged 84 on December 27, 2016 – less than two days after Carrie died.

Regarding the upcoming event, Todd added that when he approached Disney he was told Carrie’s family were in charge of the select guest list, and was advised not to bring anymore upset to Billie Lourd ahead of the event.

Todd has been present at a number of events honouring his sister since her death, including the reveal of a commemorative plaque in her memory at the Chinese Theatre in 2017.

He also released a book My Girls: A Lifetime With Carrie And Debbie, noting his relationship with his mother and sister.

It’s not known who else will be present at the May 4 event to celebrate Carrie’s life and career, though it is assumed Mark Hamill – who co-starred with her on Star Wars as Luke Skywalker – may be among those remembering her.

On the announcement of her Hollywood star, Hamill declared the honor was “Long overdue & so well-deserved.”
